Yes I agree Amarok2 is a mess. So may I recommend VLC? Since you already have the Packman Repos VLC is in there,get Packman’s version.
Now just in case that doesn’t meet your specs, there is also Songbird that too is in the Packman repos.
I use both with no probs.
Kaffeine of KDE4 is a similar disaster - all nice featured of the previous release like video adjustments have been removed.
Why would one ruin an excellent product, I am still thinking about.
I coped with by installing kaffeine of KDE3. It is possible to do by adding KDE3 repository, or perhaps in other ways. However, it looks like fonts of the kaffeine and other KDE3 applications are small and unadjustable.
Maybe you can go the same path and install Amarok from KDE3.
I only installed the libxine1-codecs from Packman to solve this.
This will also update the libxine1 to that of Packman and 3-4 more
packages, but it will work with Amarok 2.1.1 (the default of openSUSE 11.2)
I’m a newb venturing out into Linux and chose openSUSE to get my feet wet. I want a player that will give me Shoutcast and until Winamp is ported to Linux distros, I guess Amarok will have to do.
I cannot get Shoutcast to do anything but sometimes get Magnatune and Cool Streams to play. I tried to play some local files I ripped to a folder and double clicking does nada.
Question 1: How do I get anything to play? I’ve read advice given to others with similar problems and it usually sounds like the program is incomplete: “You need to make sure such-n-such lib files are installed properly” or “You need to make sure the xine engine is installed and doing such-n-such…”
Lord a-mighty, I just want to play some tunes…
Question 2: Since the good folk at Amarok have issues with submitting a complete piece of work, can anybody tell me what needs to be added to a fresh install of Amarok 2.2.1 on a fresh install of openSUSE 11.2 with KDE 4.3.1 (release 6) so I can play anything?
And if anything has to be installed in any particular order, please let me know.
My hairline and I thank you in advance for any sage wisdom you might provide.:shake:
Well if it was working fine there would not be an reason to start this topic wouldt it ???
I am on gnome desktop and amarok2 seems to be impossible with that desktop WITH opensuse other linux amaraok2 works fine with gnome desktop.
Yes you might wanna EDIT this answer but thats not gonna take anything forward ,your guides sucks just understand that dont cry ower this just understand it same with graphics ATI guides not 1 working seriusly.And THATS not because ATI graphicscard sucks on linux thats just not true.
Only thing you get trying to install amarok2 on gnome desktop on opensuse 11,2 is the awesome ICEauthority bug.
I think you are doing wrong thinking the packman is the solution for every question its just not…rotfl!rotfl!
